Hudson, New York, USA

People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Hudson, New York, USA? 

Hudson is a city located along the west border of Columbia County, New York, United States. The city is named after the adjacent Hudson River and ultimately after the explorer Henry Hudson.

Hudson is the county seat of Columbia County.

The land was purchased from native Mahicans by Dutch settlers in 1662 and was originally part of Town of Claverack; formerly it was known as "Claverack Landing". Settled by New England whalers and merchants hailing primarily from Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, and Providence, Rhode Island, Hudson was chartered as a city in 1785. The self-described "Proprietors" laid out a city grid, and Hudson grew rapidly as an active port, coming within one vote of being named the capital of New York State...Wikipedia
